Star-spangled belters

You might have seen this irresistible match-up in Mark Xander's blog. He beat me to blogging about “two of the greatest female voices on earth” applying their pipes to the US national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” but what the heck, I'm gonna rip off the sweet and smart (and hot!) Vegan Prince and ask you the same question: Who sings it better? Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey? Vote na!


Whitney Houston


Mariah Carey

my vote goes to whitey. it's not just the power in her voice that does it for me, it's how she interprets it.

mats said...

They're both great and their voice, INTENSE!! But I go for Whitney!! Power voice!

rico said...

Whitney of course! My idol! :)

Ay, parehong masakit sa tenga. My vote goes to KD Lang. :)

Amadeo said...

Mine goes to Mariah, and I confess looks played a part, too. HeHeHe.

BTW, many here agree that singing the US anthem is difficult, even for seasoned singers. So everyone singing it in public and earnestly all the way to the end, gets a nod.

But not Barr, who simply mangled it.

Hands down... WHITNEY HOUSTON.

Whitney gave more importance to the song. Mariah just brought too much attention to herself.

Mariah sang to prove herself. Whitney just sang, and sang beautifully.

even if mariah's the most annoying singer on earth, i'd still pick her. ang pretty niya eh.

i love these mariah/whitney match-ups.

i still maintain that roseanne barr tops everyone in terms of personal internalization, artistic interpretation, cultural exhibition and political commentary. she brought the global arena into the stadium; the world has not only become flat but shrunk into a football field. she made everyone aware what she -- and the rest of the world -- think of america, through the anthem that represents it. she channeled yoko ono, jean marie syjuco, the ancient oracles, ghost dancers, shamans and high priestesses all at once. her grabbing of the crotch at the end? that was michael jackson, madonna, martha graham, paul taylor and pina bausch blended together. roseanne barr rockz! barr for US president! bar the (US) president!
